Thanks for your inquiry, fjohansing. I am sorry to hear you are experiencing the same issue with dropped calls, especially since I have the XR and it works perfectly. One solution we can provide is to use WiFi calling when available. If we have to reset something to your specific area, we have to send a private message, to safely access your account. Here's a link to help with more troubleshooting questions for the XR: https://www.verizonwireless.com/support/apple-iphone-xr-troubleshooting/#/main/device/&MT322LL%252FA....
